Ik ben sinds 2002 kinderboekenschrijver van beroep en heb meer dan 50 jeugdboeken op mijn naam staan. Mijn bekendste boeken zijn de internetthrillers Superhelden.nl (deel 1, 2 en 3), de beide subrozaboeken en het prentenboek 'Billy de Kip' dat ik samen met illustrator Jort van der Jagt en liedjesschrijver Jeroen Schipper maakte. 'Waanzinnige Plannen! En hoe ze te realiseren' is mijn eerste non-fictieboek voor volwassenen. Daarnaast ben ik vader van twee jongens, gelukkig getrouwd met Tanja en geef ik lezingen Waanzinnige Plannen Realiseren.

The reign of the Kingfisher is not a superhero book. It’s a high concept crime novel that deals with the absence of a vigilante who could be a hero, a thug or both. It has a pretty good plot, though the ending is a bit predictable, great characters a ...more

"I won this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own.

A great book, but not what I expected it to be in a few ways.
What was I expecting? A tale of a SuperHero ala Avengers? Not really though I can't sa..." Read more of this review »

Neil Gaiman
“Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that - but you are the only you.

Tarantino - you can criticize everything that Quentin does - but nobody writes Tarantino stuff like Tarantino. He is the best Tarantino writer there is, and that was actually the thing that people responded to - they’re going ‘this is an individual writing with his own point of view’.

There are better writers than me out there, there are smarter writers, there are people who can plot better - there are all those kinds of things, but there’s nobody who can write a Neil Gaiman story like I can.”
Neil Gaiman

Christopher Priest
“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige".”
Christopher Priest, The Prestige
